The city of Marrakech
With the design flair of Paris, the ethnic diversity of New York, the commercial heartbeat of Hong Kong, and a history to rival any city in Europe, Marrakech is above all a city of heart and soul–a city of sunlight on rough pink walls, of fragrant, richly-hued spices, and of rose petals floating in slowly trickling fountains.
The defining landmark of Marrakech is the 12th-century tiled minaret of the Koutoubia mosque, and there is no better place to begin your journey into this tantalizing city.
From here, you will begin to explore the ancient pink-walled medina.
In the early evening, head towards the frenetic Djemaa el Fnaa, the greatest square in all of Africa–and perhaps in all the world. It was once the ultimate destination for traders from places as diverse as Venice, sub-Saharan Africa, and Asia.
Today, it provides ever-changing entertainment for Moroccans and foreigners alike, reaching its climax at sunset when the square is alive with storytellers, healers, snake charmers, acrobats, and countless food stalls.
Walk through the square to experience its intensity and then, if you wish, enjoy the view from the terrace of a rooftop café.
The entire Djemaa el Fnaa has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Cultural Space (one of only a handful in the world), due to its unique role in transmitting oral history and tradition from one generation to the next.
Visit the opulent Saadien Tombs, the mausoleum of the great dynasty that once ruled North Africa. This treasure was lost until the beginning of the 20th century, when aerial photographs of the medina revealed its existence.
Close are two of the most interesting cultural showcases in Marrakech. The Musee de Marrakech is housed in the sumptuous, 19th-century Mnebhi Palace. Nearby is the Dar Bellarj cultural foundation. Established to showcase Moroccan culture, its building was formerly a hospital for storks.
Explore the colorful souks (marketplaces) of Marrakech.
Each trade-spices, carpets, jewelry, enamel, copper, brass, cedar-is situated in its own unique quarter. You might see villagers bringing in their handmade rugs to sell to merchants, or you might observe artisans hand-tooling crafts as they have done for centuries.
Visit the tropical Majorelle Gardens, lovingly restored under the patronage of the late Yves St. Laurent.Visiting the small but excellent museum of Berber culture, located in the home of painter Jacques Majorelle. You may wish to visit the newly opened Yves Saint Laurent Museum, just a short walk from the Majorelle Gardens and the designer’s former residence.
The museum is ideal for both longtime fans of Saint Laurent’s work and people encountering it for the first time. There is a beautifully curated exhibit of his work permanently on display, as well as a research library containing many of the designer’s archives.
Visit the mellah of Marrakech. It contains narrow streets, ancient synagogues, and an extensive Jewish cemetery.
Enjoy an excursion south of Marrakech into the breathtaking High Atlas Mountains (about 1 hour away).
To many, the most beautiful part of Morocco is the rural landscape of the High Atlas Mountains. Here, earthen Berber villages lay terraced into the mountains. Their flat, baked-mud roofs nestle against the fertile slopes. Life moves at a slow pace, and the virtues of family and hospitality to strangers are held in high regard.
Begin your day in a local Berber village. Here you will find a weekly souk.
These markets, which travel from village to village, are still the mainstay of rural Morocco, where over half of the country’s population still lives. By no means manufactured for tourists, the souks are lots of fun to explore (although it is suggested you get your hair cut or teeth pulled somewhere else!).
The city of Ouarzazate
Arriving to the welcoming oasis of Ouarzazate, a former outpost of the French Foreign Legion.
Spend the early afternoon exploring the region around Ouarzazate. Visit the Kasbah Taouirirt and the UNESCO-restored Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou.
Film buffs may be surprised to learn that Ouarzazate was the setting for dozens of movies from David Lean’s Lawrence of Arabia to Bertolucci’s The Sheltering Sky.
Continue east into the Sahara Desert following the dried riverbeds of the ancient trading routes, which once transported gold and salt from sub-Saharan Africa (most of which would end up in Europe).
The Tafilet Oasis was the last stop on the trans-Saharan trading route before Timbuktu. This oasis is also the home of the dynasty of His Majesty King Mohamed VI, the Alaouite dynasty, which has ruled Morocco for the last four centuries.
As the last paved road ends at the edge of the oasis town of Erfoud, transfer by 4X4 SUV to your accommodations.
Your camels await for a short trek up the dunes! Enjoy sand-boarding on the dunes!
You will spend the night in a shared desert encampment near the village of Merzouga and the legendary dunes of Erg Chebbi. From here, you can climb the dunes to watch the glorious sunset. A traditional Berber dinner will be prepared for you at the encampment. After dinner, you will be at leisure to enjoy the beauty of the Saharan sky and the magnificence of your surroundings.
Continue your adventure by exploring the legendary dunes of Erg Chebbi. Perhaps the largest dunes in the Sahara, they are constantly shifting with the considerable desert winds.
Witness the sun rising from the east over the desert dunes–one of Morocco’s greatest sights.
Maghreb, the Arabic name for Morocco, means the West; ancient Morocco was at the very edge not only of the Islamic world, but of the known world.
The city of Rabat
Visit the picturesque, labyrinthine Kasbah des Oudaias, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, and the lovely gardens outside the Kasbah.
Visit the Mohamed 6th museum of modern and contemporary art. Visit the majestic Hassan Tower and the Mausoleum of Mohamed V.
If time allows, visit the compound of the Royal Palace–assuming that King Mohamed VI is not in residence at the time of your visit.
The reign of this young king has ushered in an era of newfound optimism and a growing respect for human rights. In 2004, his wife gave birth to a son who will one day rule the Alaouite dynasty.
The city of Casablanca
While exploring Casablanca with your guide, you may wish to visit the monumental colonial architecture of Place Mohamed V, the French-built Quartier Habous, the Gates of the Royal Palace and the Marabout of Sidi Abderrahman (a holy shrine built on a rocky outcropping in the Atlantic Ocean, to which women travel from all over Morocco in search of miracles).
Visit the Jewish Museum in Casablanca. Although its collection is still in its formative stages, this is the first Jewish museum in a Muslim country and is a good introduction to the fascinating history of the community.
Visit the “new mellah,” home to most of Morocco’s current Jewish community.
The city of Fes
Narrow doorways peer into private worlds, revealing peaceful courtyards covered with carved cedar, brilliantly colored mosaic tiles and delicately carved stucco ornaments.
In Fes, veiled women hurry through the winding streets, donkeys take their time, laden with their wares, and proud artisans craft objects much as their forefathers did centuries ago.
Scholars, architects, historians and artists travel from all over the world to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Fes, a remarkably preserved city which functions largely as it did in the Middle Ages, when it was an important center of culture and famed for its university.
Highlights of your full day include the Bou Inania Medersa (koranic university), the Foundouk Nejjarine (which has an excellent museum), the shrine of Moulay Idriss II, countless souks, and Fes’s famous tanneries.
Visit the Attarine, one of the city’s most impressively beautiful medersas.
Spend some time looking at the Jewish history and culture of traditional Morocco. Explore the mellah (Jewish district) of Fes, founded in 1438 and once home to tens of thousands of Jews. The community included 40 synagogues, the Bet Din, communal ovens, ritual baths and many schools. Visit the vast Jewish cemetery opposite the gates of the Royal Palace; its whitewashed tombstones were restored by the French.
Visit the restored Ibn Danan Synagogue–the oldest extant synagogue in Fes.
Its restoration is part of a comprehensive UNESCO project to preserve the monuments and fabric of medieval Fes.
See the stunning gates of the Royal Palace.
Visit imperial Meknes, whose spectacular city gates are among the finest in the Arab world.
Here lies the tomb of the once-feared Moulay Ismaïl, who modeled his capital of Meknes on the image of Versailles.
Other sites of interest are the underground granaries and the vast imperial stables, which once held 12,000 horses.
Meknes was once home to a thriving Jewish community. Drive to the extensive Roman ruins at Volubulis and tour the capital of the ancient Roman province of Mauritania.
Volubulis has some outstanding mosaics still located in situ. After completing your tour of the ruins, make a brief stop at nearby Moulay Idriss, the holiest Muslim site in Morocco.
At its center lies the tomb (zaouia) of the man who brought Islam to Morocco twelve centuries ago.
